Split: Ant with his estranged wife Lisa Armstrong: Dave Benett

Ant McPartlin’s PA Anne-Marie Corbett is reportedly “hurt and angry” over Lisa Armstrong’s “betrayal” tweets.

Corbett, who is thought to have recently struck up a romance with the TV presenter, is said to be “really upset” with the presenter’s estranged wife after she claimed the duo were friends.

McPartlin was pictured with Corbett over the weekend, months after splitting from his wife of 11 years.

It was revealed the pair have been dating after growing close in the wake of his admission to rehab.

After the news broke make-up artist Armstrong was inundated with supportive messages from fans after revealing she was friends with Corbett, including one from TV personality Nicola McLean who tweeted: “Sending my love Lisa!! Really feel for you worst pain ever x.

Armstrong also replied to a string of tweets slamming Corbett, replying to one user she said: “Yeah My Friend and OUR pa who I let into OUR home.” (sic)

Another slammed McPartlin’s new flame for breaking “girl-code.”

However, Corbett has reportedly denied claims of any friendship as the make-up artist allegedly "sacked" her.

A source told The Sun: “Anne-Marie is really upset at the way Lisa is trying to portray them as good friends.

“It’s really unfair- she’s trying to make out this is some sort of betrayal but that just isn’t the case.

“She hated working for Lisa and they didn’t get on well at all. They often clashed. In the end Lisa sacked her. That’s hardly the actions of a best mate.”

The insider added: “Anne-Marie’s biting her tongue but she’s hurt and angry by the way this is playing out from Lisa’s end.”
